Top Ten Tea Producing Countries

Today we would like to share about the top ten list tea producing countries in the  world. Tea plants are native to East and South Asia and probably originated around the  point of confluence of the lands of northeast India, north Burma, southwest China, and  Tibet. Although tales exist in regards to the beginnings of tea being used as a beverage,  but no one sure of its exact origins. Tea contains catechins, a type of antioxidant.  It also contains tannic acid and caffeine. There are many advantages of drinking tea.

One of them is that drinking tea is beneficial to our heart. Drinking tea is also good for  the smokers to eliminate the nicotine and other harmful chemical from the system. Tea  is made from from it leaves (Tea Plant). The leaves that just picked up from the  plants, need to go through several processes like drying, crushing, mixing, and  fermentation.

Sultan Tengah, The First Sultan Of Sarawak Darul Hana

ABOUT 200 years before the Brookes became the White Rajah of Sarawak, Sarawak  was under the control of the Brunei Sultanate. Not much has been known how  Sarawak was governed by the Brunei Sultanate but presumably there was an  equivalent of a governor then.

Not many know that around 1598, Sarawak had its first and only Sultan. How did  this come about?

When Sultan Muhammad Hassan, Brunei’s ninth Sultan who reigned from 1582 to  1598 died, the throne was ascended by his eldest son, Sultan Abdul Jalilul Akbar.

Sultan Abdul Jalilul Akbar had a younger sibling named Pengiran Muda Tengah  Ibrahim Ali Omar Shah or was better known as Raja Tengah.

According to oral tradition, Pengiran Muda Tengah wanted to become the Sultan of Brunei as well. He argued that his elder brother was born when his father was not yet the Crown Prince whereas he was born when Sultan Muhammad Hassan was anointed as the Crown Prince. This, argued Pengiran Muda Tengah, made him more suited to be the Sultan than his elder brother.

Sultan Abdul Jalilul Akbar was a wise man. He understood his younger sibling’s intention and he tried to accommodate his brother’s wishes. One way out for Sultan Abdul Jalilul Akbar was to appoint Pengiran Muda Tengah as a Sultan somewhere else. And so Pengiran Muda Tengah was appointed as the Sultan of Sarawak, since Sarawak was then owned and governed by Brunei.

According to the Salsilah Raja-Raja Brunei, Pengiran Muda Tengah accepted the appointment and he made preparation to go to Sarawak. When he went to Sarawak, more than 1,000 warriors of Sakai, Kedayan and Pulau Bunut origins accompanied him. A few nobilities went along with him to help him administer the new country. Many of these are the forefathers of some of today’s Malay community in Sarawak.

In Sarawak, the new Sultan and his men built a palace and a fort to surround the palace. Sultan Tengah began to appoint his senior officials. Among them was Datu Petinggi Seri Setia, Datu Shahbandar Indera Wangsa, Datu Amar Setia Diraja and Datu Temenggong Laila Wangsa. After everything was done, Sultan Tengah coronated himself as Sultan Ibrahim Ali Omar Shah, the first Sultan of Sarawak. According to Sambas History, Sultan Tengah was also known as Sultan Abdul Jalil.
